Combatting plant theft and fraud at the CPA Conference – Kevin Howells MD Datatag to represent CESAR


At the forthcoming CPA – Construction Plant-hire Association Conference (9th November Heart of England Conference & Events Centre, near Coventry) organised by the Construction Plant-hire Association, industry professionals will meet to tackle the critical issue of ‘Combatting Plant Theft and Fraud’. Joining this vital conversation will be Kevin Howells, Managing Director of Datatag ID Ltd, who is the driving force behind the CESAR Scheme. Joining him on the panel will be Superintendent Andy Huddleston from the National Rural Crime Unit, and Ian Elliott, Group Head of Security at Clancy, among others, offering their expert perspectives on the new challenges and innovative tactics criminals are using to target the industry.

The CESAR Scheme, the leading asset protection programme, is owned by the Construction Equipment Association (CEA) and effectively implemented using Datatag’s cutting-edge technology.

Having securely marked over 600,000 pieces of plant and machinery, the CESAR Scheme has earned a reputation as the UK’s premier forensic security marking system, endorsed by the construction sector, police forces, and insurance providers alike.

CESAR Scheme Datatag ID Ltd will be sharing updates on advancements in their technology at the conference, aimed at further safeguarding plant and machinery and cementing CESAR’s role as the most accomplished plant security marking scheme in the UK.

Additionally, the CESAR Scheme team will be present at an exhibition stand throughout the event, with Miles Taylor and Rachel Hamilton ready to discuss all aspects of the CESAR Scheme with attendees and interested parties.

This will be a key element of the CPA Conference and a must-attend event for those in the construction plant-hire sector seeking to improve their knowledge of asset protection and the fight against theft and fraud.
